The season starts early around our store. Our
teachers eagerly anticipate the First of November. Why? You ask, we
start displaying our Christmas Music that day. Remember people, it is not like
the movies, students will have been working on that holiday piece for a month
or more in order to create that feel good Christmas Magic we all dream about.
Teachers also take this opportunity to add a larger sight-reading component to
the lesson. Buy the book parents! ALL students will try and sight-read the
other Christmas music! It is painless learning. My suggestion; get a Christmas
Song book that is a level below what they are actually playing at and watch
with pride as they master the songs! You do not want to hear Jingle Bells in
July do you?
November is also a GRAND month at Ottawa Pianos. I
know it sounds a bit cheesy but its true! We deliver many grand pianos to our
customers this month. Our Grand Piano customer in November has been planning
this purchase for quite some time. They have researched pianos and are
confident in the decision they have made. We are proud to be their final
December comes fast, and the grand piano concert
rentals should all be organized. This year the short-term grand piano rentals
has already hit an all time high. School recitals, Christmas parties, concerts
at Embassies and Churches are soon to be in full swing. Take advantage of what
the nations capital has to offer. The Ottawa Citizen has a fantastic list of
what is out there:
Mid December panic may have started to set in, what to buy that musical person in your life stay tuned, next week I promise to post some ideas.
